Neuromuscular Therapy is designed to offer very effective relief for muscular skeletal pain symptoms due to chronic pain, injury, postural dysfunction, stress, stiffness, aging and fatigue.
The technique of neuromuscular therapy involves a precise micro stretching of each muscle involved in the condition you are suffering from. No machines of any type are used.
Only the human touch is used in this technique.
Suffering from pain more times than not involves the “deeper muscles” as the cause of the problem. Throughout your body, there are areas where muscles lay on top of each other, sometimes 3 or 4 deep in layer. The 3rd or 4th layer many times is the culprit. It may possess trigger point activity, hyper contraction (extreme tightness), and inflammation. When this muscle becomes tight due to injury, stress, etc., it is now programmed to stay tight to protect the bones from further injury or the muscle itself from tearing. The tendency will be to become tighter as time goes on simply because it doesn’t know to stop tightening. The muscles are attached to bones by their tendons. Many muscles overlap a joint (two bones attached) and as a injured / stressed muscle tightens, it begins to tug on the two bones (the joint), which leads to pain in the joint (a symptom of arthritis), limited range of motion of the joint, muscular pain, trigger point pain in the muscle, tendon inflammation (tendonitis), swelling. This scenario can occur anywhere in the body where two bones articulate ( joint).
When Neuromuscular Therapy technique is applied to these “deeper muscles” the micro stretching which is very thorough begins to re-elongate these muscles and returns them to their full length, thus, removing the tug on the bones/joints and many times eliminating the inflammation and discomfort you were having. Range of joint motion always improves also.
When the human muscle/skeletal system is given the chance to unravel itself from a hyper contractive state, self healing is then given the opportunity to flush out the inflammatory toxicity. With this, wellness may be at hand.
